a loyal fox

Just a couple of corrections to the CNN report – Murdoch’s (UK) Times all but ignored the story until they had no choice but to cover it the last few days; Murdoch’s (UK) Sky News’ presenters have been busy attacking The Guardian newspaper for exposing the scandal, thereby causing the closing down of the poor old News of the World and putting people out of work. Yep, it’s all The Guardian’s fault 🙄 And Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal has been busy writing its usual comically pro-GOP crap through the debt limit talks (see here). So, business as usual. You wonder where Murdoch’s people find the time to hack the phones of murdered schoolgirls.

‘that iraq feeling’

Cartoon from here

Paul Krugman: I don’t watch cable news, or actually any kind of TV news. But I gather that there’s a virtual blackout on the huge demonstrations in Wisconsin, except on Fox, which portrays them as thuggish and violent.

What that makes me think of is January-February 2003, when anyone watching cable news would have believed that only a few kooks were opposed to the imminent invasion of Iraq. It was quite spooky, realizing that hundreds of thousands of people could march through New York, and by tacit agreement be ignored by news networks whose headquarters were just a few blocks away.

And it’s even more spooky to see it happening all over again.
